Malana Cream: What It Is, Where Is It Grown & All You Need To Know About It

Malana Cream — is a word that’s very popular on Google, among charas users, and the people of Himachal. For those unaware of the creative terminologies in the world of weed, no, this doesn’t have anything to do with whipped cream or even food for that matter. So, why is Malana cream so sought after and what’s so special about it?

What Is Malana Cream?

Malana cream is the name of a variety of hash grown in the Malana Valley in Himachal Pradesh’s Kullu. It’s known for its distinct smell, flavour and texture. Malana cream is often touted to be one of the finest qualities of hashish in not just India but in the world. The high quality is attributed to the specific environmental conditions it grows in. With a high amount of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it sells for anywhere between ₹3000 to ₹1000 per 10g in and around Himachal Pradesh.

The clay-like creamy consistency of the hash and its potency has high demand in India and abroad. Reportedly, consuming Malana cream will make one happier and more energetic unlike the usual weed which leaves one with a happy high and time stops still.

Just like the name suggests, Malana cream is grown in a remote village in Himachal Pradesh called Malana. In this village, only one plant is grown and that’s the famous Malana cannabis. No other fruits and vegetables are grown here. This village famously grows the renowned hash in large cannabis fields. So, the livelihood of villagers completely depends on cannabis farming. After its popularity on social media and by word of mouth, Malana village is also welcoming tourists.  It has now become a popular Hippie trail in Himachal Pradesh thanks to its easy availability of quality cannabis.

What’s More?

Despite an entire village known for growing Malana cream, the product still remains illegal in India. Both the cultivation and consumption of high-quality hashish go beyond the purview of the law. Remember, it’s cream, not a joint. So, it’s actually made by rubbing fresh cannabis leaves using hands. Then, the resin of the cannabis plants is used to prepare Malana cream. Since it naturally grows in the region, it is difficult for authorities to implement the law. Nevertheless, unlike other fields, Malana cannabis fields actually have security guards patrolling to prevent illegal cannabis fields from emerging.
